There are many good reasons why you should hire a professional to install the tiles in your bathroom, or really any other areas of your home where you want to have floor tiles. It would fill volumes on the subject, but here are just three of the biggest and best reasons.
1. The biggest problems that home owner’s face when they are remodeling is time. It not only takes time to set up the project, but you don’t have a lot of time to spend with DIY projects, there is work, busy schedules, and all too often projects get started and then you discover that the work is way above your head, and the job stalls. Soon it’s weeks or in some cases months before it gets finished, when a professional could have it done in a matter of days.
2. The professional tilers have all the equipment as well as the manpower to come in and do the job right the first time. Most people just don’t have the right tools, grouting and finishing trowels, as well as the diamond bit saws laying around the house to do tiling. Sure you could rent the equipment, but unless you know what you’re doing, chances are very likely that you are going to break more of the tiles, costing you more money, as well as time and frustration. A professional tiler comes in, assesses the situation, takes precise measurements, and can even make adjustments on the fly.
3. A professional tiler is much less expensive than you think. Considering the time it takes to do a bathroom project on your own, and that as mentioned before you are going to probably get in way over your head and have to call someone anyway, it is just better to do it right the first time, and have someone who knows exactly what they are doing. This will save you money, time and effort, as well as keep your spouse from getting angry when she doesn’t have a bathtub to soak in.
This doesn’t mean you should just use any old person or company to come into your home. You should only use licensed professionals who have many years doing tiling in bathrooms, or wherever else you want tiles. You should get at least three different quotes to consider. Make sure that you get references, check with your local builder’s association to make sure they are a good company, and get everything in writing.
